Description

We love the outdoors and are deeply connected to country, to nature. Nature is not just a collection of trees, rocks or animals, but rather, a presence that surrounds us, providing us with profound experiences wherever we go. We create with the vision of inspiring people to engage with the natural environment in hope that you too, will feel as though you are connected with this amazing country because there really is no place like it in the world.

Our aim is to create connections, build awareness and understanding for people about the natural places around them, driven by the belief that given the right opportunities, people who had previously seen the natural environment as irrelevant or peripheral to their lives, would discover the benefits of being outdoors, for themselves and for nature. They would then come to value those benefits and develop a level of care and commitment for the natural places around them as we do.
